EU Plans Possible Summit With Turkey in Coming Months: Tusk

kkkkThe heads of European Union institutions were given a mandate to plan a possible summit meeting with Turkish leaders in the coming months at an EU summit on Thursday, summit chair Donald Tusk told a news conference.

“We have a mandate to organize this kind of summit in the next months,” Tusk said, adding that no date had been set.

The EU would be represented by Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. Tusk stressed that Brussels still had much to discuss with President Tayyip Erdogan and his government, notably an agreement that has helped curb flows of migrants to Europe and changes to the Turkey-EU customs union.
